The autumn season has rolled around, bringing along a potential watch list long enough to leave one at despair. (heaven and Hell?) Of course, among the abundant choice of titles there were some i was anticipating more than the others, and SHAFT’s continued adoption of ef was definitely one of them. And if the first episode is anything to go by, we are going to be treated to more of what made the first season so well acknowledged – controversial visual effects, excellent musical score, interesting set of characters and sky animation that will leave you searching for your jaw on the floor. And more drama.

So, what is an anime fan that suffers from major boredom issues to do when he doesn’t feel like any new series and all the abominations in PC games need a rest from the beating you have been dishing out ? Simple – get your hands on one of the Visual Novels that have lingered on your “to do” list forever and get cracking. Snow Sakura was not all that familiar title to me and the OP didn’t seem all that catchy either, so i was not sure what to expect. In the end i can say this: even though some aspects of the story could have been handled better, this turned out to be one of my most enjoyable experiences recently with top notch humor and some commendable characters.
As usual – episode starts with a dream sequence. This time we see Koko clinging to Yoshiykui’s arm, saying her dream has come true. (she sure doesn’t aim high huh ^^). Now that we know what is going to happen eventually, all that is left is to find out how it came to be.
Da Capo time again. Will this episode allow for some Koko x Yoshiyuki development, or will it be interrupted time and time again due to random encounters and event, pulling Yoshiyuki away from the poor girl ? Surprisingly, this episode manages both – introduces a new character (The school Idol Nanaka, who turns down a confession at the very start) and furthers the relationship that came about at the end of ep1.
Another week, another episode of Da Capo. Considsering the rather unexpected events at the end of previous episode, this one should bring us some much awaited answers – how is the newly founded relationship between Koko and Yoshijuki going to progress, and how will the Nemu twins (yes, this is how i prefer to refer to them) react to the news. Oh, perhaps we would also get to find out about the mysterious figures appearing at the very start of the episode for a split second.
I am sure many of you have seen (or at least heard) of the previous Da Capo seasons. This fall brings us the third installment in Da Capo anime series – Da Capo II. As such, it is pretty clear what to expect of the series – comedy, romance and drama, wrapped up with a little bit of magic.
It is alive!! Despite all the recent worries and information we might not see episode 12 at all prior to DVD releases the episode was actually aired. And so – with this episode the lovely school days of our teenage cast comes to an end. And uh boy – what an ending that is …
First of i have to apologize for the rather impressively large hole in the series summaries – due to various reasons (my very unexpected lack of interest in School Days included) i had been … er … slacking off with the summaries. But at least i should be here for the end of this trainwreck of a romance show.
If anyone was wondering where Louise and Saito went after escaping Louise’s mansion – we have our answer. They are back academy, and things look back to normal. Normal as in – students are still undergoing Agnes’s training drills. Louise is training and Saito is watching from the sidelines. But when Agnes announces she has a special teacher for them to teach combat magic you just know things are about to get whacky once more.
A new day, a new start for our ‘lovely’ couple. Saito keeps mumbling in his sleep, then turns to side and his hand lands on something, and he makes an absent minded comment that nothing is there. Sure enough – his hand has landed on Lousie’s chest ^^
And with this you just know the day is going to start with a bang, involving lots of pain on Saito’s part :)
